Island Charm did well in its first year in my garden. It gets afternoon sun.

This one has remained a consistent 12" from year to year. I keep thinking I'll move it somewhere with hostas closer to it's size, but it seems to be holding it's own in a bed surrounded by medium to large hostas.

This one has just about left my garden. Very little left of it.

My runt finally bit the dust in 2012 after it got dug up by squirrels. A friend gave me a division of a better one in 2013 and while it's still in a pot, it's doing much better than my first one ever did.
